Google Now hits iOS

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Unlike most Android phones

Lonely iOS users have been able to talk to Siri for quite some time now, and as of yesterday Google has released its Google Now for iOS. 

This very useful spy feature will need time to learn your habits, and will suggest that you need to visit that friend and meet him/her for lunch each Thursday, or something along those lines. You will be able to ask some (not so) useful questions such as who were the tallest US president and most importantly check the weather. Google Now will help you out with directions, sports scores, weather, birthdays and most importantly iOS users will get it at a time when millions of Android users still cannot run it on their old devices.

Don’t get us started on Google fragmentation, now with Android 4.3 or 5.0 behind the corner things appear to be turning for the worse. Google Now is definitely not something that will change your life, but it can be a useful tool if you need help organizing your daily tasks. It definitely beats Siri, as it is quicker to answer, at least in most cases.

It is available, and if you have an iPhone and you want to give it a try, just hit the App store and install it. If you have an old Android phone, you can’t.
